Unboxing the Samsung Fascinate, part 1

September 17, 2010

Last week Verizon sent me a Samsung Fascinate review unit, thus rounding up the US launch of the Galaxy S!

The Fascinate looks similar the Vibrant, but with CDMA instead of GSM, and an LED flash. Unlike the Epic 4G, there’s no landscape keyboard, but like the Captivate, it’s quite thin and light…

Take a look at my unboxing video and my first power on video (after the break).

Burning Man goodness, and more

September 15, 2010

So I’m back from 10 days in the desert, playing and working, and I snapped a whole bunch of pictures, as usual (slide show)…

I used phone cameras for all shots, including the Samsung Memoir, the Samsung Epic 4G, and the Apple iPhone 4, with no post-processing!

While I was away, Apple launched the new iPod nano, and I received Samsung Fascinate and Motorola Charm review units (videos).

In the next few weeks. I will be attending Mobilize and CTIA here in San Francisco, so ping me if you also plan to go :)


Samsung Epic 4G camera, and more

August 28, 2010

So you’re probably wondering what happened to my regular camera reviews. Well fear not, I’m still working on them :)

I’m off to Burning Man as usual (look for me at Center Camp Cafe most evenings), and I’ll be taking lots of pictures!

I’d hoped to test a Nokia N8 prototype this year, but that fell through, so I’ll be using the wonderful Samsung T929 (Memoir) again…

I’m also bringing my Nexus One, my iPhone 4, the Samsung Epic 4G, and my Motorola F3 (aka. the “zombie apocalypse” phone).

Follow me on Twitter, and check out my Epic 4G sample pictures (slide show) and sample video (after the break).

Unboxing the Samsung Epic 4G, part 2

August 24, 2010

Yes, I’m really enjoying the Samsung Epic 4G – take a look at my unboxing pictures (slide show), and my recent videos.

Stay tuned for a camera review, as usual – until then, here’s a tasty review to keep you satiated :)


Unboxing the Samsung Epic 4G, part 1

August 19, 2010

It’s here – the Samsung Epic 4G, the most feature-packed Galaxy S phone yet!

First impressions? As I mentioned yesterday:

Wow… The Epic 4G is something else! I think it’s even better than the EVO 4G – love the dedicated cam key, and the keyboard is über fab :)

Take the Captivate or Vibrant, replace GSM with CDMA, add 4G (WiMax), a landscape keyboard, a front-facing camera, a notification light, a shutter button, and an LED flash – that’s the Epic 4G.

Check out my unboxing video and jump to my first power on video below – it’s all quite epic :)

Unboxing the Samsung Vibrant, part 2

July 22, 2010

Oh I know. First the videos, now the pictures (slide show) – you just can’t get enough Samsung Vibrant unboxing goodness :)

Well don’t fret. I plan to get you even more Galaxy S coverage shortly – with a camera review, of course.


Unboxing the Samsung Vibrant, part 1

July 21, 2010

The Samsung Vibrant arrived from T-Mobile yesterday, hot on the heels of its sibling, the Samsung Captivate from AT&T!

That’s two of four Galaxy S devices invading the US market, along with the Fascinate (Verizon), and Epic 4G (Sprint)…

Here is my unboxing video and my first power on video (after the break) – pictures to follow, as always.
